Design matters. Like never before.
Designers create so much of what
we see, what we use and what we experience. In this time of
unprecedented environmental, social and economic crises, designers
can choose what their young profession will be about: either
inventing weapons of mass deception that encourage more consumption
or helping repair the world.
Good Design is a call to action. Author David Berman
outlines a more sustainable approach to both the practice and the
consumption of design. Through this timely, provocative and
visually engaging book, Berman offers a powerful and hopeful
message for all designers. After all, the future of civilization is
our common design project.

Writing for Visual Thinkers approaches the craft of writing from many directions, all with the ultimate goal of unblocking the reader’s verbal potential. Both experimental and pragmatic, Marks’s methods will result in stronger, more verbally confident artists and designers.
